Ottawa Book Awards

Class act last night at the Ottawa Book Awards. It’s a bilingual event, free to the public, and held in the Jean-Pigott room at City Hall. Umbrella Man had been shortlisted for the Best English Fiction Award, which came as a complete surprise since it’s a genre novel and set outside Canada.

I didn’t win, but I had a chance to catch up with Mayor Watson, who has always been a huge supporter (and who often attends my book launches), and sat with fellow author Patricia Filtreau who snapped this picture of finalists and semi-finalists.

Ottawa Book Awards

Congrats to John Metcalf, who won in this category; to Charlotte Gray, who won for best English non-fiction and to the other winners, and congrats to the organizers for pulling off a successful event. Here’s a complete list of winners compiled by Peter Robb for the Ottawa Citizen.
